Abandonment Issues: McCarrell Farm As Is
Let us take a walk together, shall we?
Its nice to meet you, we find ourselves walking up a long winding driveway on a county road on the southeast outskirts of Peterborough, Ontario. We've already met and exchanged pleasantries, shared a few laughs, parked and walked in past the real estate sign that lists the property for sale, and the NO TRESPASSING sign that first caught our attention. I told you what I knew about the property at the same moment that an iphone google search of the address and the real estate firm told me. $160,000. 50 acres with farmhouse, barn and quonset hut, as is. Landfill adjacent. Property, well, septic and structures being sold as is...further fine print.
And here we are, exploring the McCarrell farmhouse, not uttering a single word to each other.

Going down on the McCarrell farm
None of us bother venturing into this basement due to the overwheming odor
We walk outside and share another laugh, it is not for me to repeat who says what. We wander into the barn and the fierce wind rattles the barn boards on the ceiling, some of them loose and clapping hard against the support beams.
Behind the barn, the quonset hut has collapsed. Hopefully you are willing to accompany me through this space age wreckage, even with the 35 km per hour winds rocking the structure to and fro.
See you on the other side

Until next time my fellow explorer, this is where we part ways.
